I was in urgent need for a handyman, as a large part of a wall, insulation & floor in my storage closet was damaged by my leaking water heater. I decided to try Thumbtack and was very happy to see that Arisel from AA Cardenas reached out to me and said he can start work immediately. He was very prompt in replying, and very easy to reach on phone & text before, during and after the work was completed. When he came, he assessed the work to be done, gave me a very clear outline of materials needed and the labor cost. He told me he could finish the work in 2 days, which is exactly what my deadline was, and he did finish all the work in 2 days flat! He offered to go and pick up all the material from the hardware store, and worked till late on the first day to make sure he got as much work done as possible. He was very professional in putting up new insulation, patch sheet rock, applying texture to blend with existing wall texture and paint the area. He always cleaned up before he left and was very open to me asking questions about various things he was working on. Arisel was very nice to talk to as well, and he was accommodating to all my questions. He even came back 4 days later, at my request, to put floor molding. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the work Arisel did, and would definitely hire him again.

Ricardo methodically replaced all the parts in the tank to try and figure out the problem. In the end, determined it was the toilet itself. Did a great job. He was generous enough to try and not take money for labor but it was worth paying for all the effort. He was also happy to come in, despite the heavy rain.

Darin is simply a great asset. He is respectful of the customer. What I mean is - he is punctual - arrived right on time. As far as workmanship itself he is efficient and knows his stuff. I got can lights installed. He also is not afraid to get feedback - there was a moment when I as a lay person suggested something and he not only accepted it as a good suggestion but said so. Not too many pros appreciate that or are open to such feedback and I think he exemplifies all the qualities one would like to see in a great skilled worker. Thank you Darin.

Hired HP Handyman Services to repair some minor plumbing and electrical problems. The contractor was punctual, knowledgeable, and was able to make the needed repairs in less than 2 hours. Cost was $173, which seemed a little high based on the time involved, but he did provide some materials to do the work, just no itemized cost for labor and materials to determine the hurly rate. The fact that he worked on a Sunday and his professional attitude would lead me to hire this contractor again.

Byron and his assistant were very efficient in removing two old toilets and installing new ones. Byron was very responsive throughout the process. He was easy to work with and did a thorough job. I would hire him again for other projects in the future.

Mr. Hartwell demonstrated explicit knowledge and understanding of his ability to perform the job at hand. Not only did he demonstrated his ability in his work, he also demonstrated his ability to explain in explicit details the different alternatives there were in solving the problem. From the end results as well as the cost in material and labor for each method "prior to performing any work or committing to any method. His work rivals that of many contractors charging twice as much per hour. I would recommend him to anyone needing door work done.

Jasper was communicative, transparent about costs and labor, and an overall nice human being to work with! He scoped out the project with us onsite, completed our project incredibly quickly, and good-naturedly accommodated our many last minute thoughts. Hope to be able to hire him again!

Gerardo is the man! Professional, meticulous, easy-going are some of his key attributes. He did a fantastic job installing a kitchen sink faucet and also went way above & beyond to address but other sink issues that only an experienced plumber like himself would know. I was very happy to have Gerardo available in the same afternoon on a Saturday and would leverage his service again in a heartbeat. Job well done Gerardo!

Needed a garbage disposal replaced for my tenant. All questions were answered in a timely fashion within the Thumbtack app. Once the garbage disposal installation began, he discovered that a certain piece was not fitting correctly. He kept me updated with what needed to be done and if there were going to be any additional costs. Provided the store receipts for materials along with an invoice for labor to my email. Would definitely work with again!

Dan is awesome! After a plumber fixed the leaky faucet in my kitchen sink, he pointed out the rotted wood in the storage area underneath and suggested I contact a handyman to replace it. I feared this would be really expensive to fix. Through a google search for a handyman, I discovered Thumbtack, which then connected me to Daniel Ball. I was really surprised by how reasonable his original quote was and am still amazed that I ultimately didn't pay anything more, even after two hours of labor. Above all, Dan was very cooperative about setting up an appointment, arrived promptly, and worked efficiently. Plus he is super-personable and friendly. Finally, I can look at the space under my kitchen sink without having to groan. (Wish I had "before" and "after photos!) I highly recommend Dan as a handy man for your home!

My husband and I worked with Keith to renovate 2 garden areas in front of our house. We didn’t want to break concrete, so we had the challenge of making the best of the areas we had. Keith did an amazing job! We had some idea of what we wanted, and Keith provided excellent suggestions and brought lots of great ideas to the table too. Throughout the process Keith communicated extremely well, always managing expectations around time, cost of labor and cost of materials. He was very clear about his estimations and what we should budget for different parts of the job. Keith gave us the option of coming to a local nursery with him so we could pick shrubs, flowers and trees together. His horticultural knowledge really shone though, and we ended up with a good mix of perennials for major features and annuals to provides some varied interest. Part of our project involved toning down the look of an imposing chimney at the front of the house. Keith built a custom arbor and seating area that framed the chimney perfectly. Everything now looks well-designed and thought through. We’ve since started working with Keith to address our backyard too, so it’s fair to say that we’re so happy that we’d work with him again.

I wanted to expand my driveway by 100 square feet. I talked to a few contractors and some came out and gave a bid and others blew me off. Mario was different from the rest. He set up an appointment with me for the next day and he showed up on time. He quoted me a price which I eventually accepted. We set a date for him to do the work. He called me and said he could do it a day earlier. I said great. He completed the job in two days and it looks great. His workmanship was very good. He took out 6" of dirt, put in 1-2" of gravel and pour 4-5" of concrete. He matched the expansion joints up with the existing driveway and it looks great. I would heartily recommend Mario. From my experience I would say he is honest, trustworthy with high integrity.

I called Kevin today and he came out to my house today to take a look at my project, which is installing tile in the closet under the stairs. He thoroughly explained his plan, what he needed to complete it, the approximate time it would take and how much he expected for labor. He also estimated the cost of the materials that he agreed to pick up. He was very friendly. He will be doing the project tomorrow, but so far things are off to a good start.

Joe responded very quickly to my initial thumbtack message. We met within an hour and I had a detailed quote/bill via PayPal within 2 hours. He included the price for materials, rather than just his labor, which I appreciated. He picked up all the necessary materials for the project and had the fence and gate pictured completed the following day. He also extended some concrete to keep our dog from digging under our 8 year old front gate, and shored it up with some of the extra lumber. He could have given me the hard sell to replace it, but instead got a few more years out of it for me at no extra cost. I am very happy with the quality of materials and craftsmanship. I would hire him again. In fact, he will be installing a dog door through our garage wall into the side yard as soon as the door arrives. He has done great work!

He showed up on time, and completed the work as promised within the agreed upon time. And he works on Sundays . It was hard for me to find contractors that are available on Sundays and was very happy with his service. Will use him again for sure.

Justin is top knotch! We originally hired him to do demo on our 1 story flat to prepare it for remodeling but ended up hiring him for the whole job. He works really hard and is really fast but does an amazing job. He is knowledgeable and had experience in pretty much everything we needed to accomplished for our remodel. Electrical, plumbing, gas lines, cabinetry, moldings, flooring,(both new wood floors and tile) home security, new windows and doors. He did is all himself or with a few laborers and we couldn't be happier with the results. We will definitely be calling on him again in the future!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you find a good handyman?

    Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

    • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
    • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
      • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
    • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

    Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

    What does a handyman do?

    A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

    How much does a handyman charge?

    The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

    • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
    • Toilet replacement: $75.
    • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
    • Faucet replacement: $125.
    • Garbage disposal: $75.

    Can a handyman do plumbing?

    In some states, a handyman can provide plumbing services, but it may be in your best interest to call a plumber, particularly for issues more major than unclogging a drain or attaching a new sink. Hiring a plumber is important because mishandling your water and gas lines has the potential to do great damage to your home, your family’s health, or even the safety of your neighborhood. A handyman is not legally required to have any training or licensing in plumbing matters, while a licensed plumber has undergone years of education and on-the-job training. In some cases, homeowners insurance won’t cover damage caused by plumbing repair done by an unlicensed handyman.

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor, most plumbers learn their trade through a four- or five-year apprenticeship with 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training. They also receive classroom education including “safety, local plumbing codes and regulations, and blueprint reading. They also study mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry. After completing an apprenticeship program, plumbers … are considered to be journey workers, qualifying them to perform duties on their own,” according to the DOL. Licensed plumbers should do continuing education to keep abreast of safety and technology changes. Poor plumbing can lead to sewage backups, a flooded home or even natural gas leaks, so it’s best to leave it in the hands of a specialized professional.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
